Syrian government forces have managed to liberate two more areas in Aleppo from the clutches of militants as they are trying to flush them out of the strategic northwestern city.
Army units wrested full control over a number of buildings in the al-Sakhour neighborhood of Aleppo, located some 355 kilometers north of the capital Damascus, on Thursday after clearing the last pockets of terrorists in the area.
The government forces also retook al-Bureij region in northern Aleppo, leaving a large number of terrorists killed and injured.
Elsewhere in the southwestern province of Dara’a, SAA units and fighters from allied popular defense groups targeted the positions of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham militant group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, in the Dara’a al-Balad district of the provincial capital Dara’a, located about 90 kilometers south of Damascus, as well as al-Naimah village, killing and injuring scores of the rebels.
Syrian army soldiers and their allies also struck hideouts belonging to ISIS and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terrorists on the outskirts of Shaer and Jazal areas in the central province of Homs, destroying several arms depots and vehicles equipped with heavy machine guns.
